Day before Easter fun.

Day before Easter fun.

With things slowly returning to normal, some churches held egg hunts the day before Easter, a longstanding tradition. Mt. Calvary Baptist Church held one Saturday afternoon. Following the telling of the Easter story, children spanned out to hunt for eggs filled with candy and prizes. Grilled hot dogs awaited everyone once the hunt was done. Mt. Calvary will hold a Sunrise Service tomorrow at 7 am, followed by breakfast. An outdoor Easter service held under a tent starts at 11.

Local church resumes Easter tradition.

Christ Chapel Cochran’s annual community Easter egg hunt had become a tradition over the past few years. Held at the rec, department, it would feature games and thousands of eggs, sometimes dropped by helicopter. Like many events, it was a casualty of COVID-19 in 2020. Saturday, the event returned. While there wasn’t a helicopter drop, there were games and thousands of eggs for children to gather. Christ Chapel has moved to a new building, the former New Life Church of God location at 335 West Dykes Street. The church will host Sunrise Service April 4 at 7:30 am, and an Easter service entitled “Resurrection Sunday and Raised to Life Baptisms” at 10:30.
